The aircraft is essentially finished.
My improvements: Painted tires on wheels and Improved engine (I used wires). Now I'm going to do on the mat.:)

Very nice, any ABC model from 1972 takes a lot of effort to make look good! :)

Thanks :)
I made a pad (A4 format). I used a grass carpet for railway modellers. I modified the front wind deflector according to the real aircraft.

Black and White pictures always add a sense of realism to old aircraft. :)
